  1. He thinks he’s in a new popping stage because his scalp tingles and he feels lumps and getting more pimples, sees scabs. It drives him crazy.
  2. Thanks Dazed! That’s how DH feels right now...not so sure it looks that great.
  3. Thanks, yes he is Anglo but not pale. I am taking monthly pictures and he is very private, so I can’t do that. The same doc worked on his head and he went in at 4 months and they thought he was fine. I don’t think he asked this question, I tend to be the one who wants more answers at each stage...I feel like I’ve been on this journey with him. Good to know one year, I guess it’s the same as the rest of his head.
  4. My DH had FUT, single hairs in front and multi-grafts behind that. He’s at 5 months, 1 week. Overall it’s looking good, seems to be the classic case. His scalp is still pink, and it’s only noticeable in certain lights or full daylight. one side the front hairs seem to be coming in well, the other side perhaps 50% of that. I know when those front hairs grow in, everything will look much more “normal”, even if one still has months left to wait. When did you find your front hairline completely come through? Or enough that people stopped looking at your hair?
  5. Thanks! It’s more than light pink, but not angry red. It’s not that noticeable unless outside, but now it’s getting nice and sunny. He has an appt. in a few weeks and I told him to mention this to them, if there’s a cream or steroid. It’s good to know there might be. Wish he had started it a month ago, but we thought it would have died down more by now. He is not that light completed at all
  6. My guy’s scalp is still pink after 3 months, although much less so. His hair is salt and pepper and he had a lot of shock loss. Thankfully the new hair growing back in is helping cover the light pink, but you see it most at the hairline. I read that a doctor can prescribe topical steroids for this. Is that true and does it work quickly? At this point it’s just the pink that one notices that something has gone on with his head.
  7. Behappy, you may be right. After 3 weeks, 90% of it was gone but a little circle where a graft must be, hung on for awhile longer. It was about 1/4 inch in diameter.
  8. The staff just massaged it more vigorously, didn’t pick at it or anything. Gave him a PRP treatment to help with the healing. There was no crater when it finally came off in the shower. It looked normal. I think they were several that looked like one big one. He has patchy growth right now all over. It sounds like he’s all good, just need to wait it out. Thanks for responding Dr, and everyone else,
  9. Thank you. I also am wondering about the hair he lost from having the grafts inserted. He has diffused hair and they were inserted within all his hair. Do you think those native hairs that were lost during surgery will re-emerge or were they damaged with the inserts and are lost. I understand you don’t really know, individual results and all, but is this normal?
  10. It was there at 2 weeks, gone at 3 weeks. It’s the only area that has no noticeable growth.
  11. Hello,. My guy got an FUT 3 months ago and everything is coming along normally. He had a large scab area, that finally came off with the help of staff as he went for some laser treatments. They were on for longer than should have. They told him it would be awhile before hair popped through in that area. So far, that has been true. I haven’t touched the area in awhile though to see if I feel anything. The area is about 1.5” circle. Has anybody had this before and when did you finally see hairs pop through? He’s had laser, 3 PRP treatments. Also, he lost a lot of hair from the transplant and then shock loss of the remaining hair afterwards. We are hopeful that will grow back, but are concerned about the ones that were gone after the transplant. How do you tell what is native and what is transplanted hair as it grows back? Or can you at all? But like I said, except for the large scab area, things are moving along well. It’s been a long winter for him.
